When I reflect on certain textures I've tested, while I never question the interpretation or adventure behind the time, there's occasionally 'that' coat that didn't quite fit. Take the nostalgic punk biker jacket I had a tug-of-war with to get out of the cupboard last year. It evolved into a fun and powerful shoot, but it would have drowned and bullied me to the floor with each step and walk if I went out in it. Some fabrics are just too heavy to handle when you don't have the broad shoulders of a man from the Milan runway. But this isn't to say that the vibe can't be trimmed down into a skinny latte version. So with a love of leather, I traded animalistic armor leather for a lighter retail interpretation. The Topman jacket I'm wearing below is sticky to the eye and light enough to crunch and crinkle into a tough urban shape. And an editorial from Iceberg has a similar appeal, where they've even creamed the aviator trend into something softer. Be sure to let me know of your own trend adaptations this season!
